a hearing to move forward -- further forward on western soma. the final thing i'd like to bring up is the four blocks that overlap the potential central corridor that are a part of western soma. i think, you know, we really need a little bit more information as to what might be proposed for this area. what are the potential solutions? are there plans for additional high density, additional parking? some of the things that may be in conflict with that area. and while we scrutinize closely the 11th street area, we've done almost no scrutiny at all over the area that possibly could be contentious. i'm not advocating for keeping this area or any part of western soma on hold until the central corridor is ready to go forward because that doesn't make sense. but i think we really have to know where the possible areas of conflict may be, what could be done to make the two compatible, and what are the options that would be before us. i know we can't jump ahead two or three years to know exactly what may be planned for central corridor, but perhaps someone could give us some insight into wha
not proposing to do a legitimatization process within western soma. >> i just think that -- i think that commissioner moore's questions to a certain extent asking about how we treated things in eastern neighborhood and how that applies to western soma. and i recognize that every treatment -- i know we've been trying to -- we looked at market octavia and we looked at eastern neighborhoods. we're trying to create some degree of consistency across how the code treats some general principles and i just think that to the extent that that was done in eastern neighborhoods or in other plan areas, i think it's u.n. reasonable to see how we might do this in this plan area. if there is a strong compelling reason not to to understand what those compelling arguments are, and how it impacts people because, again, i think there's a reasonable expectation that what happened in the process of eastern neighborhoods would then carry over to the new process. and, so, i think that's what we need to kind of figure out and work on. and then the same thing you're talking about with grandfathering, i don't
. >> commissioners, it will place you under your regular calendar, item 12, western soma community plan - informational discussion - no. 3. this is an informational item only. >> garv, president fong, commissioners. cory teague for staff. this is the last scheduled information hearing for western soma before the adoption hearing next week on december the sixth. this is a little unlike our previous informational hearings in that we do not have new materials for you to review for this session. it's at the request of the president to allow time for additional discussion and comments on any issues that are unresolved or so far today have not been thoroughly discussed. so, just to run down a few of those, just as a reminder, first of all, if you are a member -- weeks ago we talked specifically about the issue of entertainment uses and proposed zoning on 11th street between harrison and folsom and we presented you with a number of options and what each of those options would entail. there was a discussion in commenting. specifically, there were a few commissioners that called out option 3b as
a small portion of that district -- that area that overlaps the western soma. and even within article 11 there are categories of rating and -- [multiple voices] >> article 11 is not something that would have a big impact on western soma in terms of there aren't a lot of buildings that would be eligible for article 11 in western soma. >> okay. is that an idea that's been considered? i know the article 10 -- >> that was something that was brought up, was to -- along with the article 10 -- along with the kind of article 10 landmark threshold also providing an article 11 threshold with a certain rating criteria, like category i through 4. >> right, okay. it would be good to kind of know what the inventory is or some idea of kind of the article 10, article 11 and in the broader eastern neighborhoods. the four-block kind of overlap, i can't recall. is it currently -- do you -- is it in the plan that this is being studied? i mean, is there any reference to the fact that this is being studied elsewhere? >> no. [multiple voices] >> the plan in front of you was drafted, basically the draft was com
heritage documentation. this is particularly focused on the documentation occurring within the west soma plan and the japantown community effort. they discussed development incentives with the potential designation and documentation of these resources since they don't follow the traditional model of local landmark designation because often associated with intangible events like festivals or parades. the commission addressed the department's current work in japantown and west soma and both communities were there and discussed the issues they're engaged in. the hpc then passed a motion of intent recognizing that the planning department develop a comprehensive approach to incentivizing these cultural resources city wide and we're going to work with the hpc on this proposal. they would like to bring the proposal to the planning commission and for your comments and forward to the board of supervisors and that concludes my presentation unless you have questions. >> could you help clarify for me and the bank building and beautiful location. i am happy to see movement there. are you saying
